Domain And Cname Record

Recommended Posts

I registered a domain here at TCH because I have already 2 domains hosted here and, by the way, I'm a very satisfied customer.

 

With this new domain I don't need any hosting, as I'm planning to get the hosting from smugsmug, specialised in photo sharing and selling. According to their help pages, I should ask my provider to put a cname record in the DNS to use my domain with the smugmug hosting.

 

Now I realized that I have to use masking and forwarding to achieve this, and the cost for this is close to $40 a year. Am I right here?

 

Godaddy.com offers free DNS record administration with a domain. Is there a good reason why I should not transfer my domain to godaddy for $8 and just add the cname record to their DNS servers?

I do hope that nobody feels offended by my post. It was not meant to be offensive, I'm really looking for a good reason to stay with you and your excellent service.

 

But, seeing as there are no replies so far, does that mean there is no point in staying with TCH? :(

Hi juergen,

No you didn't offend anyone, and I'm apologize that your post slipped by unanswered. What you can do is point your new domain to our names servers and we can park it for free. Then just drop a ticket to https://www.tchhelp.com/ to request the changes you need to your DNS records.

Ahh, this is exactly what I wanted to hear! :(

 

I will do as you advise, then. It might take some time as I am not set up with smugmug yet, but I'm very happy there is a way to have my domains hosted by TCH.

 

Thanks, Dick!

 

:)
